Schleich is a German company that makes really beautiful animal reproductions. We have a dinosaur and an animal collection going. They are great quality toys and pretty indestructible. It is the kind of thing you can buy for one child and they’ll get passed on to other kids.
Even though they are a German made toy they are pretty accessible. You can find them online or Target has a pretty good selection in the store. It is also a great type of toy for Grandma to start collecting. It is nice to add to a collection that will last instead of picking random cheap toys from a toy store. (We pick a new animal every time we got to Target.)
